UK Student Artists 'Transcribe the Landscape' in Work, Research

Published: Apr 30, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 30, 2014) — A Lexington exhibition and symposium will highlight a unique collection of University of Kentucky students’ ideas, artwork and research papers examining landscape from many different and unexpected vantage points. "Transcribing the Landscape” will feature UK School of Art and Visual Studies students' work from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, at the Lexington Art League, located at 209 Castlewood Drive.

 

An opening reception for the artists will begin at 5 p.m. followed by a symposium of their research papers that investigate landscape in visual studies at 5:30 p.m.

 

"Transcribing the Landscape" will feature a range of works covering mapping, social uses of land, visual interpretations, history, memory and urbanization. In doing so, the exhibition seeks to foster dialogue and discussion about land and the people who have, who occupy and who will occupy it in the future.

 

UK School of Art and Visual Studies students exhibiting work in the show and presenting research as part of the symposium are:

· Peggy Coots, art studio graduate student from Lexington;

· Trey Jolly, art studio graduate student from Hazard, Ky.;

· David Martin, art history graduate student from Hebron, Ky.;

· Mayuresh Moghe, art studio graduate student from Pune, India;

· Emily Shirley, art studio graduate student from Harrodsburg, Ky.;

· Taylor Sterry, art studio senior from Lexington; and

· Kiptoo Tarus, art studio graduate student from Nairobi, Kenya.

 

The exhibition of art work and symposium of research papers are culminating events of the interdisciplinary seminar "Landscape: History, Theory, Practice" taught by Anna Brzyski, associate professor of art history, and Joel Feldman, an adjunct professor of art studio.

 

The School of Art and Visual Studies at the UK College of Fine Arts aims to link the study of art and visual culture to the broad aims of the university’s undergraduate, liberal arts tradition by providing world-class instruction in the history, theory and practice of art.
